About the Film
Meet 85 year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. Jiro is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant located in a humble Tokyo subway station—and the recipient of three prestigious Michelin stars. This thoughtful and elegant meditation on work, family, and the art of perfection chronicles Jiro’s life as a culinary success and as a father to his son. A Magnolia Pictures release.
